About this fund

The London based PF Charitable Trust has worked with Foundation Scotland to distribute funds in Scotland since 1997, distributing over £1 million in its name during this time. The PF Charitable Trust's funding policy is to support work at community level and the Foundation provides a valuable service in targeting appropriate groups. 

Purpose of this fund

Projects must meet one of the following priorities: 

  • Disability 

  • Health 

  • Children and Families 

  • Youth work 

  • Elderly 

The PF Charitable Trust has up to £50,000 to distribute per year in grants of up to £5,000.

Additional criteria

The fund can support core costs as well as project costs. However, it can only support applications where the grant request is at least 25% of the total costs.  Please do not apply if your project as a whole costs more than £20,000.
